Together, let’s clean it up Rochdale!
We’re working hard to keep the streets clean and the borough looking at its best. We collect more than 10 tonnes of litter every week - costing taxpayers in Rochdale £1 million every year. On top of this, we’re working with community groups such as Rochdale Environmental Action Group and Spotland Pride, which hold regular community clear-ups across Rochdale.
This is a great way to show your pride in Rochdale so we’ve invested in some brand-new litter picking equipment to help even more people get involved and have pride in their area. If you’d like to hold your own litter pick, please contact us to borrow one of our FREE litter picking packs, and we’ll even pick up everything you collect and dispose of it properly!
In the pack
All our packs come in a convenient, easy-to-carry sports bag and include:
- Litter pickers in tiny tot, junior and adult sizes
- Bin hoops
- Bin bags
- Protective gloves in child, small and large sizes
- High vis jackets in child, small and large sizes
